debt ceiling pushed back and the continuing resolution, right? >> this is because of the debt ceiling in relation to this calendar. the debt ceiling increase is approved in the senate next couple days. that pushes the debt ceiling to may 18th. the back end of number of cliffs upcoming in the calendar. look here at the government deadlines the congress and white house are facing right now. first, march 1st are the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester. they begin to hit the federal budget. that is something that takes place over the course of the year and is gradual. march 27th, that is when government spending runs out. or a large chunk of it. if there is no agreement on that, that could shut down the federal government. you're looking at debt ceiling all the way on may 18th. congressional aides saying treasury is telling them pause of extraordinary measures they can use, this pushes the debt ceiling day back to sometime this summer perhaps if this is a bill that clears congress and the senate is going to consider it the next couple of days and likely it does pass of the because the debt ceiling is pushed off and the next real fast deadline is march 27th, that government spending deadline, analysts say that increases the likelihood of a government shutdown

we went back into the fiscal cliff and debt ceiling debate. it's come down markedly, 20.4%. that's the low as long as we've been asking this question and one of the big edrops we've seen. it comes in the next line as growth forecasts are rising. this the tail of the tape of the gdp forecast of our panelist. 52 responded this time around. you can see we started in march a year ago here. 2.74%. it's come down, down, down. it just shot up for the first time. not a big jump from 1.9 to 2.08. where are we for 2014, our first look, 2.56 growth a good trend, a number that could bring down the unemployment rate, although by a little bit. moving on, i want to show you two views of the economy from people who responded to our survey. bob bower says there's a decent chance that u.s. economy will get up a head of steam sometime in the second half and above trend growth early in 2014. head winds are fading and pent-up demand is surfacing. we adopt want to leave you with the good feeling. if congress doesn't solve fiscal problems, the economic signel will end with sharp dollar drop, inflation, i

in the debt ceiling. if you are right about this, there are people in trends in congress. they come from districts. they come from states where this is not their issue, so congress is polarized around the issue of poverty. we said there is a bipartisan consensus parliament does not matter. if you are right about your assessment, how do we imagine the plight of the four is going to get a dress? >> just what you have been giving these lawyers about. -- these blurbs about. people have to stop being silent. anytime i get a phone call in my office i believe at least 50 of my constituents believe the exact same thing. if you start calling your congress people and senators and saying to them you want to address poverty, trust that they listen. do not just assume or be angry when you turn on the news that television cannot talk to a spirited you have to do it yourself, because if you do not -- television cannot talk to us. you have to do it yourself. people get news media about food stamps, and everyone forgets about it. until we get more voices, until more people realize how significant th

the fiscal cliff and here we are about to approach the debt ceiling deby the and at record highs in the market. does this become helpful. alan greenspan used to look at the stock market and say there's a wrelt effect. when the stock market is going up people aren't worried about debt. are we fooling ourselves that we're looking at the market going higher and a wealth effect going on and there's real problems that have yet to be addressed in. >> that's a great point. in each of these moments they are responding to two things. kind of an action forcing moment. we had the cliff and now we'll have the sequester and continuing res hughes, and the market wants us to resolve these issues and each time we skirt around them, again, with the bare minimum, but we don't really fix the problem, and my concern is the market responds positively because we don't have the immediate problem, but we're really putting cap on what kind of growth, recovery, real competitiveness we can have in the economy until we fix the debt overhang. what you're saying it lulls us into a complacent moment and people ar

, sabrina? because the debt ceiling might -- they kind of -- escaped armageddon over the debt ceiling but it's going to come sometime between now and june, correct? >> yes. absolutely. they're already going to deal with this sequester-related cuts on march 1st. the expiration of the cr at the end of march and then the debt ceiling may 1st i believe. so a lot of looming fiscal deadlines will be the next big thing. >> bill: if republicans agreed not to push for the massive spending cuts to social security and medicare for -- as a price for increasing the debt ceiling they're going to come back, right, with those same demands. at the next round. >> i don't think those demands are going away. part of the point of the short-term debt ceiling extension just passed last week was sort of to try and leverage their position in the sequester-related discussion of $1.2 trillion of autoic spending cuts set to kick in on march 1st which are delayed two months with the fiscal cliff deal. they're hoping to extract spending cuts from president obama. if not that fight, then in the next debt ceiling fi

that congress will raise the debt ceiling every time it's reached this year, when i think about some of the reasons why stocks have gotten higher because i think that thread along with the fiscal cliff has come out of the market and that there's overwhelming sentiment that coss i solve the get problem. we asked wall street to grade our treasury secretary going out and one coming in. you can see a pretty strong sentiment that he was a seed secretary with a 2.2. jack lew, the sentiment there. 2.0. one more thing on the deficit i just want to say and maybe this is worthy of discussion here. i think this is a sign that things have improved, at these economists and guys on wall street are saying we should solve the deficit and do it now. i think if things were as bad as they were say the last couple years there might be less sense that we urgently need to fix the deficit problem. mike england from action economics said if we don't solve it now we'll get to the next cycle, as in the next downturn, with nothing in the tank to help the economy. so he's saying let's use this time right now to urgently address the deficit problem. andrew? >> steve, real quick. how does geithner get a 2.2 when he
